looked along and hard at this issue as well. as a student of the community source energy program and what it can work is what i have learned is that the key of economics is the ownership of generating capacity. i have looked at the regional munis, they have a different economic context and legal context, but if you look at the generation side, the key to the great rates that the munis are able to offer, they own their generation capacity and they have invested in that. it a long term investment and that's really key n this day and age, a climate stage is important as a source of energy generation and in to vest in that cleanest and cheapest energy and a local build out is key to a locally fantastic to energy efficient programs. the time to start investing in san francisco owning it's local, renewable generation capacity for a long stable rates is now. thank you. >> thank you very much. the next speaker, john rizo, rebecca evans, tom, and karen babbitt. >> my name is jen fong. i'm a student at sf state. i think affordable rates are important for this program that will make it sus

is an important part we do in terms of purchasing energy. i don't believe that legally there is an authority to decouple the build out from the purchases agreement with shell and in fact i think if that is the approach, i don't believe that there is legal authority for the puc or anyone to do that because the expectation and the intent when the board approved the purchase agreement was there would be a robust build out concurrent with the purchase agreement. i know that sflafco has never approved, the board of supervisors has never approved decoupling of the two. i don't know what decouple means, but as we go forward with the shell contract agreement, we'll be continuing to do a build out as robust a build out as we possibly can. the word decoupling does not, i think, describe what the board of supervisors and what this commission have approved. >> thank you commissioner campos. i would concur. >> commissioner veet or? >> i would also concur. i believe the commissions and i'm not sure the general manager we have decoupling word has been put out there at a couple of our public meetings as we
